Re: New owner engine stall issues

BPBoater...

Thanks for the explanation on why to not use automotive chargers. Had always wondered why but never taken the time to investigate - too many boat/home/other projects to do....

... and the remaining time spent trying to rest up from them!! :|

Re: Winter storage

Bill, Our boat is stored at Rivertowne Marina outside and has been for several years. Operations Manager, Bill, is a good guy to work with. With advance notice, you can get to your boat during off season and check on / work on it. Pricing seems reasonable for outside storage. We normally dock at Lig...

Re: Bought a 1980 32 SD/FB 360 Chrysler's

:-) Won't be in the area, sorry. As my signature indicates, boat's down in Aurora, In. on the Ohio R. Between working on her, fixing the popup camper we bought and household projects, I tend to stay in the area for the most part. But thanks for the offer!!!

Re: Bought a 1980 32 SD/FB 360 Chrysler's

Thanks for the pics. I'm going to (elective project) make a bimini cover for my 32' SB. I see that there are diagonal supports/stiffeners running fore/aft on each side. Have you noticed any sideways movement at the stern supports? I was thinking I'd need, even small diagonal supports running side to...

Re: Electric fuel pump issue.

Wilfred, I am SERIOUSLY considering doing just that. After 2 months of dealing with the fuel issues, I have gotten frustrated (and shouldn't) with dealing with this. The mechanic I asked to help has recommended going back to the mechanical fuel pump. I've found one online: https://www.go2marine.com/...

Re: Electric fuel pump issue.

Thanks guys. Busia - I had been advised that there's a requirement to have an oil pressure switch in place so that, if the engine dies AND the ignition switch is on (and it's left on...) the absence of oil pressure (engine stopped) would open the switch, breaking the ground circuit continuity, forci...

Electric fuel pump issue.

Folks, I'm at a standstill. The starboard engine on my boat has been plagued with fuel issues: - water allowed to get into the gas tank. :oops: That's been rectified - pumped tank out of all old gas and crud. Old gas to someone who owns a shop and uses it for parts cleaning. - carburetor issues - co...

Re: Fuel tank/pickup question

... I know from experience this 318 requires far less fuel than that BBC did! :D Good point!!! My 32' SB also has 5/16" from the tank up to where the fuel shutoff valves (including the distribution manifold & Perko fuel/water separator) are located (toward the front of the engine. From the...
